Northwest Geology Field Trips subscriber Kitty King of Blaine alerted me to a 2-meter-tall glacial erratic in Blaine, which recently emerged when brush were cleared along H Street Road. See the field trip description here. The 2-meter-high rounded stone is one of those wonderful conglomerate boulders from the euphonious Jackass Mountain Formation in southern British Columbia.
